Tabernacle is much better than seeing someone in an arena/amphi-theater/ festival.
I don't care too much for Lakewood Amphi.
Variety Playhouse (Little Five Points) is good, especially if they don't set up folding chairs in the pit.
Olde Smithe's Bar (Midtown) is my favorite, 300 max, seat...

I find that when the discussion of spirits comes up in a diverse group, there is always at least one person who recounts a firsthand experience. The spirit is usually a close relative and the stories I've heard have always been pleasant and soothing (not evil like in the movies).

One day you're listening to pop country on the radio. Then you discover Blackberry Smoke (or Corey Smith) and you think, "Wow, this is so much better."
Then CWK , The Doc & LB slowly reel you in with TT , AA, Chris Knight etc. And you think, "Wow, this so much better."

Well, the author is somewhat accurate... if you buy the premise that the gridlock was due to a lack of expanded MARTA. I think that's a bit of stretch.
MARTA did not expand due to the racial divide. To take it one step further, the racial divide was caused by school desegregation.
